Father, I pray for (name one or more) and
others in my circle of family and friends
who are struggling with challenges…

When they’re disappointed that You haven’t answered their
prayers or haven’t seemed to make any move to change things
yet, forgive their impatience. Help them to live like the prophets of old, who were patient even when they had to suffer, and who didn’t quit though they must have felt like it sometimes. Help these I’m praying for not to quit either.(James 5:10-11a)

Help them to trust You and believe that You care, that You
haven’t forgotten them–and You won’t! When trouble comes
their way, when they’re facing tests and challenges, help them
be willing to thank You in all circumstances, difficult as that is.(Nahum 1:7a; Isaiah 49:15b; 1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20)

Help them to love You with all their hearts, souls, and minds,
for You cause all things to work together for our good when
we love You and are called according to Your purpose. Help
them realize that somehow You’re fitting them into Your plans.
Help their love for You to be as steadfast and unchanging as
Your love for them.(Matthew 22:37; Romans 8:28, 38-39)

May they never question Your love, knowing it was settled
once and forever at the cross. (1 John 4:10)

In Jesus’ name, amen.
